Now that the excitement of the annual cherry blossom bloom is dying down, we have time to revel in nature’s next seasonal show: wisteria. These purple, pink, blue, and white bulbs will be flourishing all over the world by late April. And thanks to Home Depot’s Online Orchards, a mere $23 will get you your own Purple Wisteria root stock set, delivered right to your front door. The big box store’s wisteria root sets are already two years old and between 12 and 18 inches in height.
WATCH: Why We Love Wisteria
Wisteria, which falls somewhere between a shrub and a vine (technically a bine), blooms vigorously in spring with clusters of pretty, cascading flowers. Climbing and sprawling across anything in its path, hearty wisteria grows quickly (10 feet or more every year) and can provide a fragrant pop of color to a porch, pergola, or stone façade.
Happy planting, y’all!
